Miracle Story

I had forgotten about saving a baby's life

This story is really for the chiropractors of the world I have never told it before because every time that I try, I get a lump in my throat and can't continue. Thank you for the opportunity to put pen to paper

My wife, Liz and I were at a party a few years back The occasion was the twenty first birthday of the son of some old friends (I will call him Jack) As the night went on, it came time for the speeches My friend Dave gave the usual twenty first birthday speech with the usual glowing references to his son but towards the end he said and finally I would like to thank Ken Vagg and the healing miracle of chiropractic, because without them my son wouldn't be here tonight.

 I was floored My first thought was what is he talking about? and then it all came flooding back to me
The year was 1980 Jack had contracted pneumonia when he was about a year old Although Dave and his wife Liz were chiropractic patients , they opted to take Jack to hospital as they considered this to be a medical emergency Jack was given the usual antibiotics but wasn't getting better In fact he developed pneumothorax.

Medicine wasn't working for Jack and finally the doctors told Dave and Liz that there was nothing more that they could do for their baby and that he was going to die I got a late night telephone call from a panic stricken Dave who told me the story and asked if I would come to the hospital to see what I could do for Jack I said of course I would and said I would be there as soon as I could Minutes later Dave was on the phone again with the news that the hospital would not allow me to treat their son.

They didn't want a quack operating in their hospital and no amount of argument was going to change their minds So Dave and Liz did one of the bravest things I have ever seen They bundled their baby up and and against dire threats and warnings from medical staff they left the hospital and brought Jack to my house I must add that they virtually had to fight their way out of the hospital.

I examined Jack and found a badly subluxated atlas I adjusted him They wrapped him up and took him straight back to hospital When they arrived back at the hospital they were met with indignation and hostility.

The doctors insisted on examining Jack and to their surprise found that his lung had completely re inflated From that moment on all tests were negative and within a day he was discharged from hospital with a clean bill of health I checked him again after he was discharged and he was subluxation free Since then he has had a healthy existence and to this day he still comes to my office to get checked .

But I tell the story not because of the miracle of chiropractic I tell it because after all those years I had forgotten about saving a baby's life.

It wasn't because of the time factor that I had forgotten, it was because in those days miracles were common place in my clinic and I had become blasà about the healing wonders of a subluxation free body.

I have had the Expect a Miracle Today plaque on my desk from the very first day that I started in practice.

I always expected a miracle and they became so common place that I didn't give them a second thought I think that as a profession, we need to continually remind ourselves just how good chiropractic really is and why we get up in the morning and go to work .

Once again ,thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell this story
